COUNTERARGUMENT: The Trump supporters who do know Biden supporters have steadfastly refused to listen to a word any of us have said because they have all been brainwashed into beliving that mainstream media is a tool of the Deep State & never to be trusted…
The implicit solution of the article is that Trumpism can be cured by exposing the participants to friendly voices from the other side, but the very structure of the cult is designed to reflexively reject such voices as unwitting participants of a huge anti-Trump conspiracy

- When you eliminate shame from the equation, Republicans will happily lie again & again to get what they want

- When truth & power are at cross-purposes, the GOP will always choose power

- Sunlight is not always the best disinfectant; it is merely the easiest
- When you can prove that a President has told 20,000 lies in the space of four years and the resounding response from his Party is “WE DON’T CARE”, then you are no longer dealing with a persuadable entity. They are not engaging in “debate”. This is a job for a deprogrammer.

Oliver Stone had fewer questions about the Kennedy assassination than I have about this letter Image
1. *IS* a “Grinch fetish” a common thing?
2. How does this woman know that
3. If you have to assure us twice that it is a common thing, then how common is it really
4. Was she expecting significantly greater enthusiasm from her partner than “grudging acceptance”
5. Does she believe our reaction to the description of a “long, fuzzy dick” will be substantially different than it actually is
6. How insulted should the creators of the live-action Grinch film be when even a woman who is SEXUALLY AROUSED BY THE GRINCH doesn’t want to watch it

I can imagine a wonderful ironic twist to this tale, perhaps worthy of The Twilight Zone…
Not to suggest that I have spent an inordinate amount of time thinking about That One Thing We Are Not Allowed to Openly Discuss on Twitter But a Lot of Us Sure Do Hope Will Happen
Trump is not just vain & self-obsessed, but openly cruel. If he had won the election, the first thing he would have posted on Twitter would be mockery of Joe Biden for being a worthless, out-of-touch geezer who deluded himself into thinking he was powerful enough to stop Trump.

As was the case for his entire Presidency, Trump is indifferent to everything that does not directly affect HIM. And the only thing that matters to HIM is that he wants to stay President.

So he’s fighting the election results full-time. The country may as well be running itself.
Trump doesn’t have a case. He lost by 74 electoral votes. But he could’ve lost 538-0 & he would still fight the results with every waking breath, because the only thing that matters to him about being the President of the United States is being the President of the United States.
No previous President has responded to an election loss by throwing a tantrum & screaming “MINE! MINE! MINE!”, in large part because previous generations of voters were much better about weeding out infantile narcissists who only wanted the job for their own self-aggrandizement

Joe Biden received 306 Electoral Votes. For Trump’s fanciful scenario to be true, it would require fraud in five separate states on a scale beyond anything that has been seen in American history.

And Republicans are willing to believe it, because Dear Leader says it’s true.
Trump has been overwhelmingly unpopular for the past four years. His public approval has never risen above 50%, except with the notoriously pro-Republican agency Rasmussen.
Let’s not forget than a Rasmussen approval of 50% or greater was considered noteworthy enough for Trump to practically throw himself a goddamned ticker-tape parade on Twitter

It’s not about us “thinking this is a thing.”

It’s about his goons who are MAKING this a “thing” harassing legislators.

If we must have an Electoral College, the electors should be legally required to respect the will of the people.
The GOP has long supported the Electoral College for giving disproportionate weight to states that lean Republican.

Their reasons for supporting it have VERY RECENTLY shifted to include their ability to pressure individual states to choose electors that support their candidates.
The current GOP plan is absolutely an end-run around democratic rule.

Who cares how the people voted when the electors support Trump?

Who cares what the nation’s laws are when the Supreme Court supports Trump?

This is autocracy in the making.
